Not totally photo related, not just a journal. A bit of both.

Just a bw pic of tracks and an inspirational kid...

Opportunity Tracks, Mars, Aug 29, 2008.

It's just a pic of vehicle tracks in the desert. But they are 200million miles away - give or take. Can you imagine? :)

NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity climbed out of "Victoria Crater" August 29th, 2008. It was following the tracks it had made when it descended into the 800-meter-diameter bowl shaped crater nearly a year earlier.

Came across the image posted by NASA's Mars Rovers account on Twitter last night and later here on the Mars Rover Press release site.

That was after MarsRovers tweeted a drawing done by an 7yr old sent to NASA offering a suggestion on how to get the other rover Spirit out of the sand... :)

Spirit and Oppy are the Energizer Bunnies of Space exploration, and now have the next generation of scientists helping them out now. :)
